Subject

The social and solidarity economy as a partner along the refugee journey

Abstract

Produced as part of the OECD Global Action “Promoting Social and

Solidarity Economy Ecosystems” funded by the European Union, it

explores the role of the social and solidarity economy (SSE) in

implementing and complementing public systems for refugee protection,

reception and integration. In particular, it reviews the different activities

SSE entities can deploy in support of forcibly displaced populations,

asylum seekers and refugees, along their journey from origin through to

destination countries. Finally, it offers some policy considerations on how

the SSE can help national and local governments identify win-win

solutions for refugee and host communities.
